HELP! Puppy having loose stools
So recently my puppy has been having loose stools. His stools are fluctuating from being firm to a soft-serve icecream type to melted ice-cream daily (it gets worse as the day goes on.) It is especially bad at night! He recently finished his dog food, (Now! Fresh, large breed puppy food) and we purchased a new bag of the same food which he is eating now. We've tried giving him rice and that has helped a bit. Before his loose stools, I gave him a hide bone (dingo ringos) which he demolished and the day after, his stools started appearing loose. I'm not sure if that has to do with anything but just letting you know so I can get some input. We've stopped him on all treats and have just been giving him dog food and rice. His appetite is normal, and he is behaving normally-- very energetic and playful. Any idea on what could be wrong? We are thinking of taking him to the vet in a couple of days, but I just wanted an opinion on what could be wrong. He's almost 4 months, and his shots are up-to-date.
